@CityRaptor Oh man I definitely want a figure of that Compsognathus with flippers. It is so absurd. What's the deal with that?

@Shonisaurus I like your idea. That would make a good tube for Safari Ltd, if not a Safariology set.

Short: Bidar et al. proposed that a specimen found in france had webbed forelimbs. While it was debunked by Ostrom, it id make it into a number of 70s books.

Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Does this remind anyone else of the 'Wolfman's got nads!' scene from Monster Squad?

I would like a "retro" dinosaur like the trachodon based on the paleoartistic work of Charles R. Knight.

I'd like an Aurora-style diorama of this Zallinger scene:



That looks almost seductive, like Dracula biting a victim. And that Allo has a skeevy look in his eye, too.

I want this creepy duo here:

@Sarapaurolophus yes, yes, and yes. The Dinosauroid and his ancestor would make for a lovely set of figures.

I actually did spot a toy of the humanoid once on eBay, but it seems to be rare.

I would love to see a model of the very first prehistoric aquatics - the 19th century ichthyosaurs and plesiosaurs of the Crystal Palace.

I'm starting to enjoy older Spinosaurus reconstructions, only because the more I think about it the more dubious I find the new one.
Yeah especially when compared to relatives, but in the end spinosaurus is a weak, skinny, aquatic, flipper tailed, spined fisher that everyone says has trouble eating. ::)

But seriously, what if the ansector of spinosaurus, baryonchines and relatives looked like the earlier spinosaurus depictions, and was just a transitional stage between megalosaur to spinosaur.

Just another case of speculative evolution

When was Spinosaurus having trouble eating a thing? Or did I miss something?

Probably refers to eating large Dinosaurs...despite the likes of Deinosuchus and Sarcosuchus not having such a problem. So I guess that is one those claims people who can't get over JPIII  make.

I was being sarcastic. Basically some people these days are saying spinosaurus was a totally weak and skinny animal. In fact, theres a couple of guys who said spino's jaw is so puny and cumbersome it sometimes broke while eating. Thats the biggest pile of Hadrosaur Feces i ever heard in a while

Boy I have to say my Spino take aged poorly.

I know but the grammar is not right/ is confusing to me

"Boy I have to say my Spino  aged poorly."
What do you mean by Spino take

@Stegotyranno I meant "take" in the sense of "interpretation or view, opinion or assessment; perspective" (sense 3 here: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/take#Noun). I'm just saying that my opinion on Spinosaurus didn't hold up well, in light of the paper on its tail anatomy that came out just a couple of weeks later.

Not sure to what degree the Ballad of Big Al depictions are inaccurate, but I still imagine in my head allosauruses looking like Al did.

I think that depiction is still fairly accurate.

I'd like to see a figure of the compsognathus in this Burian painting

I think a fully-articulated figure of the original Sharptooth from Land Before Time and/or Littlefoot's mother (either Mattel's JW level of articulation or David Silvas' Beasts of the Mesozoic figures) would be awesome. You know what? ANY of the main characters from the original Land Before Time as figures with modern engineering and sculpting would be killer.

I know he's a nutcase with an ego, but I still adore many of David Peters's depictions of prehistoric creatures, especially the ones in the Giants book. Outdated designs from it I'd want made into figure form: "Dinichthys", "Zeuglodon", and Gigantopithecus.

Also, Garyosaurus never even got a figure (unless you count the clay figurine used for the animation).
